A PIGEON’S SONG – BEST PROJECT
The Jury’s Comment: The pigeon’s song depicts the tragic love story of Carka’s grandparents during the time of dictatorship in the Republic of Albania with the reading of the grandfather’s prison journal. The film is a cycle of memory and fiction, blurring the differences between them. Carka invites viewers to a dialogue as he questions and undermines their memories and his own. With virtuoso skill, he effortlessly employs myriad techniques, building, replicating, and erasing, revealing the mechanism of renewed representation between the living body and its means of documentation.
Written & Directed by: Eneos Carka
